Kiwis, Dog Fouling and Other Stuff
Firstly the Kiwi's the cuttings I took the other week most seem to be doing fine, some just rotted and died the others I checked on this morning and found this
I have roots yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
well not me personally but the kiwi cuttings have roots.
The grapes sadly didn't make it, so I am going to try some more.
Now dog fouling, the path I walk along on the edge of the fields in the morning when I am going to see to the Alpacas is covered in dog mess, there is a bin at each end of the path for dog waste, sometimes I even see tied up bags of dog waste hanging in the hedge, WHY WHY WHY.
There is a woman I see most mornings walking her 3 dogs, I have had a confrontation with her before as she has no control over the dogs and they always come bounding up barking and I have even had them jump up at me, I have suspected her of not clearing up her dogs mess, this morning I caught her red handed YES, I followed her to see were she lived in the village and confronted her about the dog fouling, of course she denied it, I then showed her some photos I took of her with her dogs fouling and her walking away, she then accused me of being a pervert and a weirdo for being in the field at 7-30 in the morning and not even having a dog with me, I did respond with my reasons for being there, I have now forwarded on the photos and her details to the council who I know take this very seriously and she stands to be prosecuted, I have also forwarded them to our village newsletter who are happy to name and shame offenders.
Other stuff, we have officially exchanged on this house yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee now we are just waiting on the exchange on Wales should be in the next few days.
The Alpacas are going to be sheared today yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee another job done, so I have kept then shut in there little enclosure ready for us to take them this afternoon
There not too happy being closed in so I gave them a load of hay to sweeten them up, they will enjoy the benefits later when they are rid of there thick fleeces, they will also be getting there teeth checked and having a full manicure, I plan to take lots of pics and video them at the beauticians this afternoon.
